UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 From a three part tasting at Churchkey (Peeper, Corruption, Double Jack). Of the three this was my least favored - a matter of my taste not beer quality. It was presented as an "American" IPA. By comparison, it was light on the citrus and floral notes, favoring an assertive, resinous bitter with a slightly malty center. A deeper brownish-gold. Nice beer, just not what I was looking for that night.
Re-rating - upgraded it relative to other IPA’s I’ve been tasting.

Comments: First beer from this brewery hershiser2 (3410) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Popped open a car from Total Wine, South Richmond, while being disgusted with humanity. Pours murky orange. Small off-white head. Overly resiny aroma - I know I’m not going to like this, and it seems fitting. Flavor is resin, pine, grapefruit peel, caramel malt, licorice, dirt. Yea, don’t care for it. It tastes like little thought was put into it. bhensonb (15338) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Tap at Bar Symon at Dulles. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma is piney/citrus. Med body at least. Flavor is strong pine/citrus with a roasty malt character making me think of a best bitter on steroids. Good ale. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2017
On tap at Ellas Wood Fired Pizza in DC. Nose is a bit soapy and piney. Taste is moderately bitter and lightly sweet. Soapy hops, caramel. Some fruits. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Alright but definitely oldschool. ttoadee (1509) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Light bronze pour, off white head. Nose is malt and cedar. Bitter. Middle is dank bitterness, nice medium malt backbone, and some bark. Finish is evenly bitter.

Pours a clear golden orange on tap with bubbly off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild piney hops with a hint of caramel malt. Taste follows, clean and simple old school east coast IPA, like 2 hearted light. Not bad but not exciting. Aggiebob (1171) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Draft. Orangeish gold in color with a white head and lacing. Hoppy aroma and taste with notes of grapefruit. Moderately bitter. Evolutionary (505) - Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Can from Greg g. Nose is floral hop usual stuff. Body is a bit thin and heavy on hop without a ton of balance. Usual citrus rind and grapefruit hints there without much sugar. Pretty dry and Ibu is up there. Not the best IPA but would be interested in it on tap. hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2017
12oz can. Poured an amber color with a small sized off white head. Pine, citrus and some toastiness. Body I would say on the thinner side. john44 (3111) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2017
Cask Third of a Pint at GBBF 2014, Olympia, London Aug 2014 - Dark Amber in colour. No head. Hoppy; piney resinous hops; good hop hit. Fruity; grapefruit citrus and some tropical fruit. Malty; caramel malts. Bitter-sweet hoppy citrus fruity and dry throughout. Decent. (2014-08-12)
